Lepow U-Stone Series 12000mAh External Battery Review

Notice the unique football shaped, two layered packaging? What’s more interesting about this is that it’s make from recycled cardboard boxes whose process produces only Carbon Dioxide and Water as waste. Plus, they clearly recommend that you NOT throw away the packaging BUT compost, yes, compost the packaging. This is perfect for the gardener in me.

Thanks to Tomoson I received a complimentary item for the purposes of review. This UStone 12000mAh portable battery pack from #Lepow can charge my #SamsungGalaxyS4 up to four times before needing to be recharged itself. It’s a little weighty – the literature says it’s 12.8 oz, but I measured it at 11 oz. It sits comfortably in the palm of your hand. I’ve even found it fairly easy to use my phone while it’s charging with the #UStone.
This large lithium polymer  portable charger has been indispensable on long trips away from the house.  In our vehicle there is only one charging port in the front and if you don’t have a long enough cable it’s impossible to charge and use your phone at the same time.  During the time I had this charger I made two trips to the Cleveland area and was never left with a dead device.  The Lepow UStone in addition to being beautiful and natural looking made sure my phone was always in a usable state.
Having a portable charger is a must for those who travel especially now with the new regulations requiring a mobile device or laptop be powered up before entry or re-entry to the US. No one wants to lose their devices to Customs & Border Patrol or TSA after a nice vacation. . . Or ever. Be sure to always keep your devices charged.

It takes about 7 hours to get a full charge on the UStone charger.  All you have to do is plug your mini USB phone charger into the mini USB port and let it charge.  The small LED lights on the front of the charger will blink as it starts to “fill up” and for each 25% of space that finishes the light goes solid and stops blinking.  Once all four are solid and not blinking you know it’s done.  If it sits for a while without being used or charged it can deplete the usable life of the battery.  It’s recommended to give it a full charge at least once every 6 months to keep it in top operating condition.
Though the ports on the top say In for the mini USB and Out for the USB you can plug plug the USB end of the iPad charging cable into the Out and the #Lepow UStone 12000mAh charger will charge your mobile device. Don’t let the labels fool you. Want to know how much juice is left? Either shake the battery back or tap the rounded end of the battery pack, opposite the ports, on the counter or table and the 4 little LED indicators will show you how much is left on the battery. All 4 and you’ve got a full charge. As its depleted they turn off.
